If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

It cannot hurt to try. Give counseling a chance for at least one month having one session a week if possible. The hardest thing is seeking counsel. The next hardest step is showing up for that first session. It is uncomfortable for anyone to open up to another person. No counselor expects a client to pour out their soul in the first session. Things take time. It certainly will not hurt to give it a try.

Are there any recurring themes or issues you’ve noticed as you treat people in your area of specialization, and how has this insight guided your approach?

Most situations whether trauma, depression, anxiety, and a variety of others there is typically low self-esteem, lack of self-respect, and self-blame. It is important to look at beliefs about oneself and in specific situations, and examine for truths and lies. Sometimes we are our own worst enemy and we have to examine what we are telling ourselves.

Is there any research-based work you’ve done that you found particularly exciting, and how has that informed your practice today?

The most exciting research-based technique that I have been trained in is Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). This is quite the excellent technique and can be used in a variety of situations like trauma, anxiety, phobias, general worry, low self-esteem, past experiences, etc. It can also be used to bring down stress levels one may have about sessions. If applicable, I try to use this technique with every client as there is typically something that comes up where EMDR can be useful.
